  • Prep time:

  • Total time:
  • Yield: 4 – 6
  • Difficulty: easy


  • 8 – 12 good quality pork sausages
  • vegetable oil
  • 150g plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 150 ml milk
  • 110 ml water
  • salt & pepper


    1. Pre-heat the oven to 220C (200C fan oven) , 425F, Gas mark 7.
    2. To make the batter sieve the flour into a large bowl, holding the sieve up high to get some air through the flour. Next  make a well in the centre, break the eggs into it and add a good dash of salt and pepper.
    3. Measure the milk and water in a measuring jug, then, using an electric hand whisk on a slow speed, begin to whisk the egg into the flour – as you whisk, the flour around the edges will slowly be incorporated. Then add the liquid gradually, stopping to scrape the flour into the mixture. This can also be done using a hand whisk.Whisk until the batter is smooth.
    4. Take an oven proof flame proof roasting tray (approx 12 x 8 inches) and pop the sausages in with a little oil to prevent them sticking. Cook for around 10 minutes before removing on to the hob. Quickly pour your batter in and return to the oven for a further 30 minutes until the batter is crispy and the sausages browned.
    5. Serve immediately with mash, peas and onion gravy.
